Radio

In 1908, the ship was one of just nine equipped with the "C" Tune Gear, capable of transmitting (only?) on "S", "U" and "W" tunes. It was to receive a Service Mark II set in 1909.[2]

Alterations

An order for a design for a director system for Duke of Edinburgh was likely issued in early 1915, but priorities for director fittings were such that it was only installed in October 1918.[3]

Duke of Edinburgh was paid off at Portsmouth on 3 August, 1918.[4]
